Kia Ora, Welcome to your "home away from home". We are a small and friendly backpackers (with the best garden!) We offer both shared dorms and a private room in the heart of Wanaka.
Why stay with us:
We have mixed shared dorms and a private queen room. Perfect for individual travellers, couples, or small groups.
Last minute bbq? Need to leave your bag somewhere? What about a drying room for wet hiking boots or ski clothes? All guests have full access to this and more...
Don't take our word for it, see for yourself.
Spacious room and there are cupboards to hang clothing. Even upper bed has a small basket given to put stuff , which is so sweet. Bathroom is clean and with hairdryer . Kitchen is big and clean too.
The property lives up to its promise. Located really centrally and easy to reach. Easy to explore all of Wanaka. You can also get to Roy's Peak quickly. The garden is a dream and invites you to linger. The room and the kitchen have everything you need. In the bathroom are two separate shower cubicles and two toilets. Everything was very clean,
Kind, Solo-traveller friendly & The Cleanest hostel you'll get. Had the best hostel experience I have ever had in this hostel & found it a bit emotional leaving. The hostel is full of supportive staff, hard working cleaners and had a really shared-house environment. Travelling as a young, solo female, I often get quite nervous in hostel situations but It didn't take me an evening to get settled here. Both receptionists Hayley & Alex are friendly, attentive and kind, and Hayley supported me through a couple of clumbsy injuries with her first aiding skills. The cleaner Simone there is also super hardworking and gentle, constantly in conversation with the people in the Hostel. I will for sure be back here soon - but for anyone travelling solo I just couldn't recommend this place anymore!
I stayed in the hostel for a week and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Staff and long termers are super nice! Everything is perfectly clean and the lounge has a great view and is super cozy, it has a nice fireplace. The showers are really good and the rooms and beds as well. Location is unbeatable, close to everything but in a quiet spot.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was my first impression. The central location, friendliness and helpfulness of staff, clean & warm, good kitchen set up, comfortable bed, all amounted to a good stay in Wanaka. Good parking off road also. Building is not so young as are facilities but everything works & it was a welcoming environment.
Calm, very good atmosphere, it's easy to meet new people. The hammock was a good friend 🙂 After the hike on the Roys Peak exactly I wanted for relaxing. I would stay here again.
The people here are AMAZING, and I felt right at home. Lovely lawn to relax in, cozy couches to sink into, instruments to play, books to read…
